North GA woman gets billion dollar power bill

ACWORTH, COBB COUNTY (WRCB) - It's tough for some to make ends meet and pay their bills on time.

So imagine a Georgia woman's surprise when her utility bill asked for one billion dollars!

Scarlett Hall lives in an Acworth home with her husband and three children.

Owing over a billion dollars is an unsettling situation.

She's had high power bills before, but nothing like this.

Talk about it being tough to make ends meet.

"Last month I pawned the title to my car to pay the light bill. Now, I think I might need to start selling organs," says Hall.

Scarlett called Cobb Energy to rectify total.

Customer service rep was able to correct the bill, bringing it down to a more reasonable and accurate $287.
